Orchesis Intercity Dance Company 

Orchesis is based in Normal, Illinois and includes students from 5 high schools in the area. Student choreographers work with the company to realize their own visions into a full dance concert at the end of each semester. It was a pleasure to work with these talented artists to help bring their stories to life. For the 2016 Fall Concert, fellow graduate student Erica Maholmes and I split the concert, designing 7 pieces each. Below are some of my favorite moments from my lighting designs.
